    Not a whole bumper, but JSAI Aero do rear pods.

    If you're set on a bumper, best bet is to look overseas, Amuse is fairly popular (but mostly as a whole kit), the two versions of Nismo, Varis, etc.

    Fujimura and Evo-R also do rear diffusers if you're going down the add stuff on route like with JSAI.

    Newbie
    Hi everyone.  New to the site. Not new to Nissan,which i've had for 16 years, had 180sx, 32GTR and my pride and joy, VQ35HR twin turbo powered Sil80.  All of which sadly are now gone. 
    I've joined to hopefully sell my last remaining VQ bits.  Brian Crower stroker crank and Carrillo rods. Hope my intro will allow to post in the for sale section and hopefully offer you guys some bits if you're after them. 
    If an Admin can advise what i need to do to post, it would be appreciated. I had a ready through but didn't find any info on this. 
    Thanks in advance.

    Bought the car. Went to another licensed vehicle tester and passed the test without a hitch.
     
    Thank you RobZ33!

    I love my 370z and I love tracked vehicles (used to drive APCs) and I love snowboarding. Put the three together and you get this.... https://www.autoblog.com/2018/02/04/nissan-370zki-quick-spin-review-89453929342/ Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Here you go mate, you'll find it here:   https://infrastructure.gov.au/roads/vehicle_regulation/bulletin/pdf/NCOP11_Section_LS_Tyres_Suspension_Steering_Nov_2015_v4.pdf
    Also take a look at section 4.
  11. xiaxk added a post in a topic Wheels / Rims not Road Worthy Victoria   

    THank you so much; i appreciate you spending time on this and comparing the original and current wheel setup. I completely agree with you on this. I read this article
    https://practicalmotoring.com.au/car-advice/law-changes-to-make-legal-suspension-lifts-and-lowers-easier/
     
    Here the author mentions what you described (the document that you referred to and that this author refers to was updated in Oct 2011). But he goes a step further and specifies the changes made to the ESC requirements after doing some testing by research. Unfortunately, I cannot find the document on vicroads that shows this change. 
  12. RobZ33 added a post in a topic Wheels / Rims not Road Worthy Victoria   

    https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/safety-and-road-rules/vehicle-safety/vehicle-standards-information
    If you take a look at Vehicle Standards Sheet number 8 on this site, under section 13.7 it states:
    "To remain within the scope of this section of VSB 14, a vehicle fitted with ESC must not be modified if the operation of the ESC is affected"
    Since fitting rims & tyres of an identical rolling diameter to the stock setup won't affect the ESC, there is nothing unroadworthy about the wheel setup.
    This link shows the difference in size between the original setup on the rear, and the current setup: 
    http://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=245&aspect=45&diameter=18&wheelwidth=9&offset=15&width2=275&aspect2=35&wheel_size=19&wheel_width=10&offset2=20
    You'll notice on the left hand side the difference in rolling diameter is negligible and the track width increases by 7.7mm (you're allowed to go 25mm wider in track in Vic). So the Vertinis aren't going to affect the roadworthiness of the car.

    Wheels / Rims not Road Worthy Victoria
    Hi Guys,
    I am buying a 2009 370z that has these rims and tyres
    Vertini Drift
    Rear: 275/35R19
    Front: not sure.
     
    The seller told me that the roadworthy failed as the wheels are not stock and the roadworthy rep asked the seller to put on stock wheels to pass the test as any vehicle that has stability control must have stock wheels. 
    Please note that the there are no scratches or no physical damage to the rims and tyres are perfectly fine.
    Can i please get some help on what are the specs of 2009 370z  rims and tyres and why do you think it failed? Have you guys faced this problem? Is there a workaround (apart from replacing with stock tyres for the sake of test)?
     
    From my research, i think the stock:
    Front: P225/50R18
    Rear: P245/45R18
    Front: 19x9 inches
    Rear: 19x10 inches
     
    I intend to buy the car by tomorrow. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yea you cant, but until i get full licence i can drive a beat up subaru impreza 
  20. RobZ33 added a post in a topic How to get/import a Nismo 350z?   

    You could always move to Japan or the UK for a year and bring one back as a personal import. 
  21. Loki07 added a post in a topic How to get/import a Nismo 350z?   

    LOL, can you even drive it on you'r p's ?

    How to get/import a Nismo 350z?
    Hello, fellow z33 lovers.
    I'm fourteen and I would like to get a Nismo 350z when I turn 18/ get my full licence. Yea I know thats sometime away but all i do is look up listings for these vehicles. Say what you want, "Some spoiled kid tryna getting his parents to buy him a car cos he saw tokyo drift" or some shit like that but its the total opposite. I'm already saving but I know if any of you know how to get a Nismo edition this car. Its not on that SVES list and I can't find any listings on sites like Gumtree or Carsales. I can't even find a importer that sells these:,( Am I going to have to go to Japan and do a shit ton of paperwork + pay shipping to get one? If anyone knows how to get one, please tell me. It would greatly appreciated, cheers.

    It's more likely the squeak is coming from the idler/tensioner bearing which needs to be replaced 
  24. MartinZ added a post in a topic 370z is dropping cyliders intermittently   

    You spend $6k with a mechanic who has not fixed he problem and not read the ECU codes ???  He's clearly hopeless...
    You're now worried about a $300 ECU diagnosis (which should have been done much earlier) ???
    You post asking for ideas without telling us what remedial attempts have already been done to date ???
    Hmmm...
    White smoke is normally coolant being burnt (things like blown head gasket or even cracked head).
    If you can smell oil it's either being burnt and going out the exhaust or the engine is wet with oil evaporating due to heat.
    Burning oil will kill the cat's and they are likely to clog causing a loos of power at the very least
    I doubt the solution will be found on the internet - best to take it to a decent service centre
